adviser as his homeland security adviser, taking the place of john brennan. brennan is being moved over to the cia and if brennan is confirmed there, he will now have a woman advising him on homeland security matters. it would not be the first time a woman filled this role. fran townsend, now adviser to cnn previously held that post for the bush administration, but it would be a woman taking a senior post. we have learned that sylvia matthews burr well who worked in the clinton administration is the top contender for omb director although that is not done. >> janet napolitano is staying on as secretary as well. thanks for that. jessica yellen at the white house. let's dig deeper with the correspondent, cnn's state of the union. women are coming in. there women in the administration. does he still have a gender diversity problem? >> let's ask this when we get further down the line. this is not about the title. when you look around and you look at chief of staff, secretary of state pentagon chief, those are -- the treasury secretary, those are the most powerful cabinet level and chief of
surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four years. we are talking about passing a federal budget. republicans in the house trying to force senators to come up with a spending plan will go without pay. mike emanuel is live on capitol hill with more. when we take up the debt ceiling deal? reporter: the senate is likely to take up the bill some time next week. they are r
hagel. he was asked about some of the opposition. and senator john kerry, designated to be the secretary of state, responded. here's a portion from yesterday's confirmation hearings. [video clip] >> i know chuck hagel. he is a strong, patriotic former senator and he will be a strong secretary of defense. i have dealt with him in a number of areas. he's been ahead of the atlantic council. some of the things -- and of the efforts to color his approach on some of these things don't do justice. host: you and many others are in opposition to his nomination. guest: i've been urging president obama not to nominate chuck hagel for secretary of defense. there are plenty of mainstream and moderate to liberal democrats as well. president obama won the election and is entitled to have john kerry as secretary of defense. we're not making a fuss about that at all. -- secretary of state, rather. chuck hagel is not in the mainstream. i agree with john kerry that chuck hagel was a strong, patriotic former senator, reason to become secretary of defense. his defense of him was pretty lame. he could not say
in the week about climate change. you heard john kerry's testimony yesterday. he will have a big part in this. when he is secretary of state. now john boehner is saying the white house has no choice you but to agree with this decision that you have made but will they? >> well, i don't know for sure but i would just say the president's decision is what's in the national interest of our country. well, when you think about job creation, energy independence, protecting the environment, all of that is done with this route. so to me, he is at a stage where he could approve it and should approve it. again, i don't mind him taking 60 days to review it. i understand that but let's don't, we shouldn't have this go on the entire year. it is really now time for the president to act. bill: it's a lot of jobs and goes right to the heart of our energy policy as you would argue. the left considers this product dirty oil. what do you say to that? >> i say to that, look at the big picture. this is about energy independence. you know what? i've talked to young men and women who are over defending our country in
back under the legendary john gallardi. i always teased denis that, you know, he made up for modest talents with extraordinary dedication and a high threshold for pain. >> they seem loose and comfortable, jokes and smiles there. candy crowley joins us from washington. candy, it is very clear the president chose someone with whom he has a close relationship. question is, the other people who work in the west wing and in the white house, how are they reacting to the mcdonough choice? >> they like him. he's a popular guy in the west wing. i think jessica yellin noted how crowded that room was for the appointment, how happy people seemed that he got what everyone knew he was going to get, which was chief of staff. i think outside you heard the president talking about, don't get me wrong, he's tough. i think that if you talk to some folks at the defense department, the state department, mcdonough obviously is an expert when it comes to foreign policy and international affairs. he broke some eggs over there in those particular institutions. so he's no pushover, but i think the most import
in algeria, and she will make what may be her final appearance on capitol hill today to introduce john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he'd address those threats as the next secretary of state. >> mar gren brgaret brennan, th >>> david ig nair shus wrote on this. good morning. >> good morning. >> she answered the questions and asked to put this behind her. >> she gave a good account. it was an intense session. thing on the sound bite we'll remember, secretary clinton asking what difference does it make knowing exactly how this happened. i think it does make a difference, and the reason is it's clear in hindsight that the united states simply didn't know enough about what was happening in benghazi on the day that these four americans were killed. the intelligence wasn't good, the security wasn't good. the plip low mats failed. there's a deep obligation on the department to do it better. so i think that position will persist. it's got to be fixed. >> the secretary will take responsibility. not only that she'll make sure the recommendations are enacted and that t
-span. host: john, are you -- sorry. edward, in favor or opposed to term limits? caller: i'm in favor of the people voting them out after one or two terms. this 32 years and 36 and 40 years in the senate and the house, it's ridiculous. a good example of that is trent lott. i watched him this morning on fox news. he's 70 years old, and he says -- he just went back to work. with, he retired from the senate early to avoid a law that said he couldn't -- go join a lobbying firm until five years after his term expired. well, he quit early just to avoid that law. so now he's out there, he says 70 years old, and he just went back to work and he's going to work. host: we got this from cnn politics, got this online. gop senators push for term limits is the headline. a handful of republican senators have proposed a constitutional amendment to limit how long a person may serve in congress. currently there are no term limits for federal lawmakers. but senator jim demint and several of his colleagues advocating service in the senate be limited to 12 years while lawmakers would only be allowed to se
disfunction of the senate. mcconnell is over the hook. ensi gn paul says i never thought when john boehner told harry reid to go f himself that he actually would. he tweeted that to us at bt show show. between us your comments there. >> this is the difference betweencrats and republicans. okay? when republicans have power, to their credit, they ram through their agenda. look at george bush. won the presidency, rammed through those bush tax cuts in march of his first year in. democrats get power, and they are free to use it. this time, we democrats won the white house. we picked up what? three seats or whatever it was in the senate, held on to the senate and picked up, up to 55 votes in the senate and picked up -- didn't win the house but won eight new seats in the house of representatives. so democrats have the power today. this was the best moment, the best opportunity we will ever have to do something important for this nation in order to get things done no matter which party is in charge and go aheadet rid of the filibuster or at least fix it so that it
years of public service and testimony. senator john mccain a vocal critic of the obama's administration's response to the attack said clinton's answers left him unsatisfied. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda in mali and the recent terror attack in algeria. right now she's making what may be her final appearance on capitol hill introducing john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he would handle those threats as the next secretary of state. >> margaret brennan thank you. "washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound
this morning." >>> google received more than 240,000 requests last year for data, joining success john miller former assistant fbi director. good morning. >> good morning. this is the seventh report it's up, what does it tell us? >> well it tells us that computers and electronic communications are more and more involved in the commissions of crime, but it also tells us that law enforcement is getting more adept at figuring out how to use these things to do everything from mapping a suspect's social network to try to determine if they can find the criminal network in there as well as determining if something's happening. >> should we be worried about this because they're using this as kind of warrantless searches. >> okay, so there's a lot of press out there about this and the headlines all say government warrantless snooping of your e-mail is up. these are very charged terms so let's do a quick civics lesson on how this is supposed to work in real life. when they talk about subpoenas, when you look at the numbers, you see the big numbers are in subpoenas, and the
. the president has promoted four women to senior posts in the white house. most notably lisa monaco that if john brennan is confirmed to run cia, she will be the president's white house adviser on homeland security and she has an interesting resume herself. >> let's talk more about that. we saw valerie jared. had had a chance to press her on whether or not the white house feels there's a sufficient amount of women and diversity on the cabinet. they say when it is all said and done, it will be reflective of the united states. do you get a sense the white house -- there will be more announcements and look more diverse? >> reporter: sylvia matthews burrell is the top contender to run the office of management and budget, which is currently run by jeff and previously run by lew. on may be the administration and then at the gates foundation and now walmart so that would be one woman. and then lisa monaco is an interesting person. she's currently at the justice department. she was fbi director mueller's chief of staff. she also worked on the enron task force helping to prosecute some of the people in
